Flash Storage Technology is changing the economics for storage. SSDs now commonly have lifespans much longer than do storage controllers, making it cost-effective to replace the SSDs in a storage system less frequently than the controller, a dissagregated design. Evaluator Group Economic Interactive Model shows the difference between a disaggregated storage controller and device technology compared to traditional storage. Set the size of the system, growth rates and to change the number of years of ownership for the controllers and storage devices, (see left side). In the Settings tab you can vary prices and do some “what if” scenarios. For a more complete explanation, see the Report linked below.
